    Hello folks, I'm new to the forum, and glad that I found this great site. I'm still stuck on the Treo 650 and looking to upgrade, so I decided to visit Palm's web site.

    I just finished chatting with the Palm support and found out that the Treo 750 will have an update availabe to have WM 6.1. He didn't give me the date as to when it will be available, but he said it is planned.

    However, reason I stumbled upon this site was due to the fact that he informed of the Treo 850 which will be available before xmas which I started to google hence I ended up here. So many choices so little $$.

    I know there is an update for WM6.1 but I'm not sure if its official or not. google it and see what you can find. as for me I'm running WM6 on my treo 750 that's unlocked for use on the T-mobile network. I never had any problems with WM5 when I had it for about 6 months before I did the upgrade to WM6. WM6 just makes everything smoother.

    Man, life is full of decisions! Treo 850 / Pro or Treo 750 now available at a cheap price.

    Trjons, can you PM me how you updated it? Does the screen resolution gets bumped up to 320x320, or is this the LCD limitation?

    There are two 6.1 ROMS on xda and I have used both.

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=365873

    and

    http://rs86.rapidshare.com/files/978...199WWE_STD.rar

    I think I am actually using the latter though.

    I must have overlooked that one. The latter one that is.

    Thanks

    I just loaded it today.
    No issues so far.
    I will post back in a couple days.

    By-the-way, the one I used before was buggy.

    Hi Berdinkerickle,

    Any idea if the ROM you tried will work on locked phones ie. Rogers in Toronto?

    Does flashing the radio mandatory?

    mine is locked to att and had no probs.

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't flash the radio.

    The Rom is WWE.
    basically what you would get if you bought your treo directly from palm.
    usable with all gsm carriers.

    This WWE ROM, does it have the SMS functions?

    For upgrading the OS, did you do the steps below? I copied and pasted it from - http://forum.centrospot.com/showthread.php?t=164538

    "Choose the relevant ROM to match your country and language and download it. Then put the CHEEIMG.NBH file from the zip file in the root directory of a mini-SD card (I have a spare which I used, and had nothing else on it). According to what I have read, you should make sure that the SD card is formatted as FAT32 (use Windows to do that).
    Put the mini-SD in the 750's slot and make sure that you have the phone on AC power (NOT battery). Press and hold the PTT button on the side (underneath the volume buttons) and use your stylus to press the reset button. When 'Loading' shows you can release the PTT button. The screen should be tri-colored, which will change to a screen with a progress bar. Do not touch anything fr 10-20 minutes until the screen shows 'Update Completed'. At this time you can do a HARD reset (hold down power key and press reset button, when asked if you want to erase data, press the up part of the D button for yes). Wait, wait wait and then you will have the relevant ROM on your phone."
